Crystal Obelisks


 

The dictionary defines the word obelisk as a tapered, 4-sided pillar originally erected in pairs at the entrance to ancient Egyptian temples.  However, it is truly much more than that!

     

          The Egyptian obelisk was carved from a single piece of stone, usually granite, and embellished with hieroglyphics.  Reaching heights of over 100 feet, it was wider at it’s base (rectangular or square) than at it’s pyramidal top.  During the Roman Empire, many obelisks were transported from Egypt to Italy as a possessive symbol of power.  One of the most well-known modern examples is the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C.

 

          Though their first existence began in ancient Egypt and is still predominant, the obelisk is also a significant part of South American and Mexican cultures as well.  In terms of the metaphysical, some experts on crystals consider that obelisks are designed for the release of built-up energies within the earth.  By strategically placing it on the earth, trapped energy, which could cause destruction like volcanoes, will be dissipated slowly and out of harm’s way.  The obelisk’s shape maintains the balance of earth’s stored energies and releases them into the atmosphere to be circulated around the globe.

 

          Crystal Obelisks act in the same manner when placed within a building or room in a location full of stored energy.  A calmness, peacefulness, and serenity are obtained, especially if placed in a common area where entertaining is predominant.

 

          Crystal Obelisks are also storehouses of knowledge.  Depending on the area where the crystal is mined will determine what information is contained within it.  The inclusions of a crystal obelisk are similar to the hieroglyphic symbols used to relate a story or event.  Most obelisks contain various aspects of world history.  Each face or faceted cut will release information different in nature, but pertaining to the same subject.

 

          Lastly, Crystal Obelisks can be used for healing purposes by placing one or several in an area for extracting & replacing negative energies.
